Colonialism No More!

April 18, 2016 @ 8:00 am - May 2, 2016 @ 5:00 pm

ONGOING UNTIL NOTIFIED.

“Join the Solidarity Camp outside INAC in Regina! Our goal is to occupy night and day! Come by and sign up for a shift.

Activists have been occupying offices of Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) in Toronto, Winnipeg, and James Bay following news of the suicide crisis in the Attawapiskat First Nation in northern Ontario. INAC offices have been closed to the public across colonial Canada since last week.

Occupiers and activists are demanding that the federal government offer more than band-aid fixes in response to the terrible crises created by Canada’s ongoing colonialism in First Nations across Turtle Island. No more dispossession! Return the stolen land and pay up for the stolen resources!

There are First Nations in Saskatchewan in states of emergency! Indigenous lives matter in Saskatchewan! Indigenous youth matter! Canadian colonialism must stop!

Come stop by the camp!

HOW YOU CAN HELP: Bring tents and signs. Share this Facebook event page to spread the word! Come to a rally at the camp outside INAC at 5 PM every day when there will be speakers and food.

More announcements coming soon! Come by and say hello at 1827 Albert Street!”
